Tuesday’s are Corporate Wellness Days at You Define Wellness!

By Denise O’Malley, founder of You Define Wellness

We understand corporate wellness isn’t the highest priority for a company. To succeed, your organization has to focus on the objective of your purpose – be it selling widgets or services – not the health of your people. Employee wellbeing? It’s an afterthought, a fluffy, nice-to-do but not necessary function of running your business.

Grief and Mother’s Day

Grief and Mother’s Day 2021

If I were to count the Mother’s Day without my daughter, it is 30 and without my son it is three. Counting Mother’s Day without them however does not make me feel better. It actually makes me feel worse. Focusing on them not being with me causes the wounds to reopen. I relive the days they passed and the heartache that came along with it. Those are the bad memories associated with them. I would rather focus on the good, so I have been intentional to look for the positive and remember the joy I had with them.

#WellnessWednesday Lunch Bunch

by Denise O’Malley, founder and Healthy Living Maestro at You Define Wellness

When white light passes through a prism, the light is separated into its component colors with each color being integral to creating a beautiful rainbow.  At You Define Wellness, each color is symbolic of a dimension of wellness and illustrates how critical each component is to healthy living.

Sounds good, but this is real life.  How do you achieve harmony with all the dimensions?

The Journey to Finding Balance and Harmony: One woman’s true story

by Denise O’Malley, founder and Healthy Living Maestro at You Define Wellness

The achievement of ‘wellness’ has oftentimes seemed like an exercise in spinning plates to me.  Just when I’ve got the plates all spinning, one starts to falter.  I focus my attention on that plate and just as it starts spinning correctly, other plates start wobbling.  I repeat the pattern until I’m thoroughly exhausted and all the plates suddenly crash to the floor.

Sound familiar?

On February 21, 2021, all of my plates crashed.  All of them.

Avoiding Workplace Word Wars

by Lorie Reichel-Howe of Conversations in the Workplace

If you work with people, it’s inevitable that you have felt the sting of cutting words, the stab of sarcasm and the sickening silence when a coworker is verbally attacked.  When workplace word wars occur, people become casualties, relationships are strained, and morale plunges downward. Unless people effectively and confidently respond to verbal outbursts, culture will erode, productivity will plummet, and attrition will skyrocket.

Dealing With Constantly Complaining Coworkers

by Lorie Reichel Howe with Conversations in the Workplace

Quite frankly, the majority of us complain about work because it’s work. We are all guilty of doing so at some point. But then there are coworkers who get stuck on repeatedly complaining while making no effort to address and resolve issues. If you work with a chronic complainer, you may feel like you are held hostage and suffocated by their negative mumblings.
